Description

Use plain English when you write for the web and your message will be easier to read and easier for people to act on.

Recent changes in consumer law make it vital that universities use plain English when putting together website copy.

That sounds straightforward enough. But the truth is, when you've worked in a university for a while, it’s easy to fall into the habit of using academic jargon and acronyms. By the end of this workshop you'll have a set of practical techniques, along with a plain language toolkit, to help you avoid falling into this trap!

Content of the workshop:

  • Intro – What is plain English?
  • Why use plain English when writing for the web
  • Tools for assessing how readable your text is
  • Techniques for applying plain English


PLEASE NOTE this training is only open to staff employed at Oxford Brookes University.
